Short Review: Yarn Owl - "Tiny Dots"

I'm definitely overdue to give these Washington State nature-rockers a couple of nice words on their recent release Tiny Dots.

The seven song album is a mix of older and newer tunes. It's been just about a year since I first stumbled on their myspace page, so the new songs (Stay in Tune with the Moon, Without You...) are a lot tighter than some of the older cuts, like Rubix Cube. Mind you, a first time listener probably wouldn't get this out of it, but the combination of older, charming recordings and the new crisper ones definitely makes for a nice compilation.

All and all it's perfectly crafted pop in its simplest form.
